  3. After being brought in from the Rajasthan Royals ahead of the IPL 2021 season, Chennai Super Kings batter Robin Uthappa recently opened up about his initial conversation with MS Dhoni last year. Last season, Uthappa only appeared in four games near the finish of the tournament after being benched throughout the first half. He made an immediate impression with 115 runs in four games and a useful 43-ball 64 against Delhi Capitals in the qualifier one. Uthappa was bought back by the Chennai Super Kings for his base price of INR 2 crores in the mega auction 2022, and he batted at number three in the opening game, striking a 21-ball 28 in a low-scoring game. After moving to the top of the order, he continued his fine form with a half-century in the next game and 13 in the third game against Punjab Kings. As he recalls the moments when he arrived at CSK setup, the veteran hitter has been one of the few bright spots for CSK this season. View this post on Instagram Uthappa said he appreciated Dhoni's honesty in telling him that the 36-year-old would not be able to immediately join the CSK playing XI and will have to wait and see how the tournament develops. He went on to say that the CSK coaching staff took great care of him and that they kept him in a positive mindset even when he wasn't playing. In a conversation with Ravichandran Ashwin on his YouTube channel, Uthappa confessed that he liked how Dhoni told him on Day 1 of his time at CSK that he will not be given any easy chances and will not get to waltz his way into the Playing XI. He said that the team will have to wait and have to see how their season progresses and if an opportunity arises, he will be informed and expected to step up. View this post on Instagram Commending the coaching staff, Uthappa also said that the people around the players were very sensitive to the psyche of the players and knew how important it was to keep checking up on the athletes, even the ones on the bench.

  5. Women always wonder how even the most low-maintenance guys manage to look so attractive. Do they have a special talent to look put together in a simple black tee or a grey sweatpants? While a dapper man in a three-piece suit doesn’t hurt the eyes, it’s an enigma how men in the most humble outfit can look stylish and irresistibly cute. © Instagram/Aditya Roy Kapur Apparently, men have a knack of looking attractive and it might be the way they style their clothes. Women on Reddit shared how men style their most basic stuff from the closet and dress in a way that really makes them go weak in the knees. As a woman writing this, I can vouch for it. So men, take notes! © Instagram/Vicky Kaushal You don’t have to spend a million dollars to look attractive. It just takes paying a little attention while dressing up that goes a long way. 1. “If we're talking more casually.. fitted jeans with a collared shirt rolled up to the elbow is always a winning combo. Forearms are the boobs of men.” –narwhalbaby 2. “Sometimes my husband gets out of bed on the weekend and throws on a pair of jeans with no shirt or belt. The jeans ride just low enough to drive me crazy without actually showing anything.” –GirlsBeLike Instagram/Aditya Roy Kapur 3. “Shirts with rolled-up sleeves. Gets me every time.” –98thRedBalloon 4. “I think "well fitting" is the most important thing overall. Sloppy, oversized, baggy jeans or tops will get you totally ignored. Wear what you're comfortable in, but make sure it shows your shape.” –Unknown © Instagram/Siddhant Chaturvedi 5. “Well, I always prefer a man naked, but if he HAD to wear clothes, I'd say fitted shirts and jeans that hug the ass in all the right places. For dress clothes or work clothes, a suit with the jacket off, tie loosened, a few buttons undone, and his dress shirt rolled up to his elbows. If my man walked in the door like that, I would literally pounce.” –TeHNyboR 6. “When guys wear all black and go for an edgy look. I don't mean the goth look. Just black jeans, black vneck, and combat boots. Sexy.” –Unknown 7. “A really nice watch. Highlights the forearms, I guess? Oh my god, please do the thing where you straighten your arm at your side and kinda shake it, and the metal chatters. Because I will lose my freakin mind.” –heart_in_your_hands © Instagram/Varun Dhawan So the next time you are wondering how to make your simple and utilitarian clothes and accessories like a pair of old jeans or a watch look extremely attractive to a woman, remember that there is always a way to wear it that could drive her crazy.

  6. Becoming the captain of the Indian cricket team is a tricky business. If you lie and get caught, you are up for some major social media judgement and a lifetime of trolling and criticism, whereas if you become completely honest about your views on the current situation of the squad, you can be called insecure, incertain and incompetent, even though you really have gotten the chance to prove yourself. For Rohit Sharma, the newly crowned white-ball captain of the Men in Blue, his honesty about the probable future of the team has already exposed him in some kind of social media judgements even before he got to captain the side in the first of three ODI matches against the touring West Indies team. View this post on Instagram Ahead of the first ODI at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Sharma confessed that there might be a possibility that during his initial days as the Indian captain, the team would continue to lose a few more series. Rohit Sharma (on the possibility of getting Test captaincy) said,"There's time for that. My focus is on limited overs cricket. Workload management is important. We could lose a few series because we need to keep changing players, but we're ready for that.#RohitSharma | #INDvWI pic.twitter.com/jgdI5QiiJU — Rohit Sharma Fanclub India (@Imro_fanclub) February 5, 2022 The reason ‘Hitman’ gave for such a thought process was that the squad was still experimenting with the final roster, and there is a “need” to continuously change the players in the team either willingly or unwillingly (for instance because of the players contracting the COVID-19 virus). Rohit Sharma: We could lose a few series because we need to keep changing players, but we're ready for that Upcoming Series: West Indies, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan #CricketTwitter — Sushant Mehta (@SushantNMehta) February 5, 2022 However, Sharma’s logical explanation was looked down upon as an excuse and he was branded as an “insecure captain” who lacks belief and does not trust his own teammates’ potential of winning matches. What makes the scenario even worse for the skipper is that the Men in Blue are scheduled to play against some of the easier teams in the near future as compared to the teams they had played just before he assumed the position of the leader. The upcoming series during which Sharma is confirmed to be the captain of the squad consists of playing against the West Indies, followed by Sri Lanka and Afghanistan in March. If Rohit cant make team win against these minnows ...he should leave Captaincy and give it to Bumrah ... insecure caption ever — Sumanta Mandal (@Sumanta94348693) February 5, 2022Overrated Player — Sayon (@36_sayonmondal) February 5, 2022future - Rohit sharma ruled out for 8 month — Utsav Agrawal (@UtsavAg93016471) February 5, 2022That's a negative approach. Moreover, announcing that we will keep changing players will make the newcomers insecure. None can express with the fear of failure. We need to find talented players and back them even if he fails a few initial matches. This is wht MSD did with Rohit. — Crime Master Gogo (@Gogo2267890) February 5, 2022Darpok Captain Pehle se hi maan liye , agar haar geya to koye questions nehi kar payega — Milan Mahanty (@MilanViratian) February 5, 2022At the moment, the Indian cricket team is ranked fourth in ODIs whereas the West Indies, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan are ranked eighth, ninth and tenth, respectively. In T20Is, the Men in Blue are only second to England whereas Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and the Windies are ranked at the seventh, eighth and tenth spots respectively. View the full article

  8. Pakistan women's cricket team captain Bisma Maroof back in action for ICC Women's World Cup after maternity leave
  9. India’s young wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant has once again become the talk of the town but not for any good reasons. His dismissal in India’s second innings of the Johannesburg Test has created a huge uproar on social media. A vast majority of fans and experts are slamming the youngster for letting the team down by throwing away his wicket, playing a reckless shot. © Reuters It’s not the first time the 24-year-old batter has been accused of not batting according to the match situation and playing into the hands of the opposition. The southpaw had received similar flak many times in the past where questions were raised over his immature and self-damaging batting style. After yet another batting failure, former India opener Gautam Gambhir came down hard on the left-handed batter saying that instead of fighting it out in the middle he opted for an easy way out and went for an expansive shot without thinking about the consequences. Not just his dismissal, the cricketer-turned-politician was also not particularly happy with his constant chirping from behind the stumps and shared a great piece of advice for the Delhi Capitals captain. © Twitter Gautam Gambhir Speaking on Star Sports at the end of the day’s play, Gambhir said, “The easier thing to do is to keep sledging someone and the toughest thing is what you have to face when you have a bat in your hand. I would have liked Rishabh to probably fight in that situation rather than stepping out and going for a big one.” When asked about whether he was disappointed with Pant’s dismissal, he replied: “Disappointment is a very, very understated word to be honest because this is not how you should play Test cricket.” © Reuters “Test cricket is about learning a lot and that's the reason I have said that a lot of young Indian batters can learn a lot from Dean Elgar as well because when you play against world-class bowlers, they are not going to give you easy runs,” he added. Pant came in to bat at a crucial juncture in the match on Day 3 of the Test match when hosts were on the ascendency. They had dismissed Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane in quick succession and were looking to restrict the visitors for as cheaply as possible. © Reuters The sensible thing at the moment would have been to just play out some deliveries and see how the surface was behaving. But Pant being Pant, went for a big hoick and ended up losing his wicket for a duck, with his brief stay lasting on three deliveries. Some people argue that this is how Pant plays and sometimes, it pays off and sometimes, it doesn’t and we should be too critical of him. © Instagram Rishabh Pant However, they perhaps don’t realise that in order to succeed at the international level a player needs to make some adjustments to his game and it’s not that Pant doesn't know how to build a patient innings. He has shown in the past that he has the ability to grind the bowlers out initially and pounce on them later on when they are out of juice. © Reuters Pant wasn’t the only reason why India couldn’t set up a big target for the Proteas but he did play a massive role in ensuring that the hosts remained in the game.

  12. The festival of Diwali calls for upping your fashion game and experimenting with your style. Before you pick out a boring kurta and pajama set this year too, let us introduce some really cool and breezy outfits that you can debut this festive season (stress on ‘breezy’ because comfort is all that matters after living in PJs for more than a year). Picking a nice and dapper Diwali outfit is more than kaju katlis. Okay, not more than kaju katlis but you get the point. © Instagram/Vicky Kaushal You don’t necessarily need to go the traditional way too. In fact, you can mix and match your western and Indian outfits to make your perfect #OOTN that is equally stylish and fit for the occasion. It’s your choice whether you invest in a new piece or upcycle an old kurta and wrapping it with a shawl (that works too, see below), © Instagram/Ayushmann Khurrana Here are all the Diwali outfit inspiration that you need this year. Take a look at 5 celeb-approved smart and breezy outfits that you can pick, style or blatant copy for Diwali. 1. Trendy Yet Traditional © Instagram/Ayushmann Khurrana Fuss-free, relaxed and uber chic, this is definitely a cool dude’s outfit. Pair your oversized kurta with relaxed fit pants and a floral shrug. Ditch the jodhpuri juttis or loafers for some kickass sneakers. This is also a great outfit to go from pooja at home to the card party at a friend’s house. 2. Play Up With Prints © Instagram/Aditya Roy Kapoor Prints are not just for summer shirts. They are the latest addition to modern man’s festive wardrobe too. A printed nehru jacket over a humble white kurta or a short printed kurta can amp up your look with minimum effort. Go with small subtle prints and cool colours to make your own Style Diwali outfit. 3. Mix It Up With Tailored Fits © Instagram/Vicky Kaushal Simply put on a summer blazer over your kurta for some extra oomph and a warmer outfit, especially if you belong to a colder region (since Diwali is a winter festival). Style pieces from the same colour family for a monochromatic look or strike a cool contrast with complementary hues. The choice is yours. 4. Sherwani, But Make It Casual © Instagram/Sidharth Malhotra A sherwani is a wedding outfit, we get it. But the one that is a bit toned down, unembellished but comes with the same well-cut fit is a winner for Diwali. Pick a colour other than blue, black, white and ivory. Go for yellow, orange or green and keep the rest of your look pretty simple with a white pajamas and mules. 5. Indo-Western OOTN © Instagram/Varun Dhawan Not big on traditional wears like kurtas? Or maybe too bored to wear the same attire every year? You can debut a cool indo western style by wearing a solid tunic or round neck shirt (mandarin collar works well too) and throw on a jodhpuri jacket over it. Pair it with jodhpuri pants and you’re all set. View the full article

  14. When it comes to fitness, most of us focus on cardio and strength training the most. Most fitness goals are either about weight loss or weight gain. Even though flexibility is just as important, it’s rarely on our mind. We often believe that flexibility is a natural gift, but that isn’t true. Anyone can become more flexible. All that it takes is some effort and consistency. Why Is Flexibility Important? As a generation, we complain about back aches, bad cramps and poor posture a little too often. The solution to all these problems is simple - flexibility training. A flexible body has a lowered risk of injuries, better posture and balance and experiences less pain, overall. Stretching exercises, yoga and pilates are some forms of workouts that improve flexibility. They help in relaxing muscles and can also help in enhancing your mood. How To Be More Flexible All of these major benefits of flexibility make it an essential part of everyone’s workout. As we age, our lifestyles change and being flexible may help you combat those changes with ease. Here are some ways through which you can improve your flexibility: 1. Easy 10 Minute Stretches It goes without saying that stretching before and after your workout is important. However, doing some easy desk stretches can help you even more, especially if you have a 9-5 job. Take some quick breaks to do some simple back stretches and your body will slowly start opening up. __ECOMPRODUCT__1199__ 2. Doing More Yoga/Pilates These forms of exercises combine stretching with some strength training and are great for loosening up stiff muscles. If you work out 5-7 times a week, start reserving a couple of days for yoga, pilates or any other workout that focuses more on stretching. __ECOMPRODUCT__2076__ If you don’t have much time on your hands, you can always do some surya namaskars. They help in opening up almost all of your muscles, especially when done at a slow pace. 3. Go Slow & Steady Instead of doing difficult stretches and experiencing unnecessary pain, start by perfecting the simple stretches. Consistency is the key here, so focus more on being regular and take one step at a time. __ECOMPRODUCT__1814__ 4. Warm Up Your Muscles Another tip that will make painful stretches a tad bit easier is to warm up beforehand. When your muscles are warm, post some light exercises, you can stretch them further and more comfortably. __ECOMPRODUCT__1846__ 5. Massage Out The Pain It’s ironic how stretching can prevent muscle pain but can also cause it. This is especially true for people who are beginners at flexibility training. __ECOMPRODUCT__2425__ Initially, you might experience some pain and muscle soreness and massaging can help you get rid of it. You can use some massage oil and massaging tools to relax your muscles. __ECOMPRODUCT__2426__ 6. Breathe Through Your Stretches Breathing the right way is extremely important. It helps in improving your stretches and going to your maximum capacity. As a general rule, you need to breathe in while prepping and breathe out while stretching, however this may change from one exercise to another. __ECOMPRODUCT__1819__ 7. Take Additional Help Initially, it might be difficult to do even the simplest of stretches, for example, bending forward to touch your toes. In such cases, you can take some additional help, like yoga belts, to do your exercises. These belts can also be used to intensify your stretches when you reach the advanced levels. __ECOMPRODUCT__1833__ The Bottomline If you want to get rid of your slouchy posture, back pain and easy injuries, flexibility training is a must for you. Modern day lifestyles, especially during a pandemic, make it even more crucial for you to take out time for your health. Do you like flexibility training or do you think its too excruciating?

  15. Rahul Dravid is one of the most loved cricketers in the country. What made him special was the passion with which he played cricket. Throughout his career, he always put the team first and was ready to do anything to help the team. © Reuters One of the greatest cricketers of his generation, Dravid did everything he was asked to. When the team wanted to play an extra batsman he was asked to take over the wicket-keeping duties and he agreed without any second thought. In fact, whatever task he was entrusted with during his career he not just fulfilled it but nailed it, which earned him the respect of millions of fans all around the globe. © Reuters In the past few months, there have been a lot of speculations about Dravid replacing Ravi Shastri as the head coach of the Indian cricket team, especially after his two-year contract as the NCA head came to an end earlier this month. Putting all those speculations to rest, ‘The Wall’ has reapplied for the National Cricket Academy job and is all but set to take the job for the next two years. Knowing that their competition is Dravid, no other “prominent names of stature” have applied for the role. © BCCI Some fans have long wished to see Dravid become the head coach of the senior men’s cricket team and they got hopes after reports claimed that current coach Shastri, who is 59 already, has decided not to reapply for the role. While it might have been a tough pill to swallow for many people, not all fans were as disheartened by this development and they welcomed the decision with open arms. They argued that by choosing to stay put at NCA, Dravid has made a wise choice because he would not have to go through the same fate as Anil Kumble, who became a victim of the power game within the Indian dressing room. Very very happy. My heart would have sunk if he had to go the same ordeal that Anil Kumble sir did — Darshan (@dachushetty) August 19, 2021Very very happy.

My heart would have sunk if he had to go the same ordeal that Anil Kumble sir did — Darshan (@dachushetty) August 19, 2021Very very happy. My heart would have sunk if he had to go the same ordeal that Anil Kumble sir did — Darshan (@dachushetty) August 19, 2021Ever since he retired, Dravid has dedicated his time to nurturing young talents in the country as the head of NCA in Bengaluru. Players like Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill and many others have learnt their traits from Dravid at some stage in their careers and benefited immensely. © BCCI Every Indian fan knows how important a role Dravid has played in the development of some of the most exciting young talents in the country. Today, teams across the globe are envious of India’s strong bench-strength and Dravid has played a major role in that during his first tenure as the NCA head and we hope it continues like that for many years to come.

  16. Day 1 of the second Test between England and India didn’t seem to do any favours for off-form batsman Cheteshwar Pujara who once again had to return back to the pavilion with a disappointing score off his bat. Having played 23 deliveries, the one-down batter managed to put up just nine runs on the board before it was the notorious James Anderson who managed to read him like a book and did a two-ball experiment which turned out to be successful. View this post on Instagram On the penultimate ball of the 50th over, Anderson tested the waters with a hefty inswinger which left the batsman startled. Doubtful of what would happen on the next delivery, he makes the mistake of pushing out and giving up an outer edge. Travelling to the third slip and into the very capable hands of Jonny Bairstow, the ball to end Pujara’s innings was delivered. This is when the fans of the Indian cricket team and those of the former Indian skipper and red-ball cricket master, Rahul Dravid, hopped on the internet to put an end to all the comparisons that take place between Dravid and Pujara. It seems like Pujara was never a good technical batter like Dravid. He just knows how to block the balls which can be easily driven for four. — The Cricket Statistician (@CricketSatire) August 12, 2021 Pujara only has the temperament of Dravid. Technically and range of shots wise, they are no way close. Dravid had all the shots in the book - cuts, drives, pulls, glances played off both foot and on both sides of the wicket. https://t.co/JtCoDOPl3o — Bubba Gump Shrimp Company (@wildcardgyan) August 12, 2021 Pujara comes.. Pujara struggles.. Pujara edges.. Pujara goes.. 2 minutes of silence to those who calls him as the replacement of 'The Great wall - Rahul Dravid' #ENGvIND — Pacchi (@prashanth_lc) August 12, 2021 Aisa paap lagega na pujara ko dravid se compare karne ka — avinab (@avinab16) August 12, 2021 Lol. Dravid is one of the best to have ever played the game. Pujara on his best day was Manjrekar on steroids. — Rohit G Banawlikar (@RohitBanawlikar) August 12, 2021 Ever since India won the incredible Test series in Australia - a series Pujara continues to consider one of his finest tours in International cricket, his performance with the bat has been subpar. Following the disappointment Pujara brought to the team during the World Test Championship finals, his position in the Playing XI became a major talking point, especially after skipper Virat Kohli spoke about bringing an overhaul to the team and bringing in people with the right attitude. “You have to reassess and replan and understand what dynamics work for the team and how we can be fearless. Bring in right people who have right mindset to perform,” Kohli had said after losing the WTC final to New Zealand. “We definitely need to work out better plans on understanding how to score runs. We have to stay in sync with the momentum of the game and not let the game drift away too much. I don’t think there are any technical difficulties as such,” he asserted. View this post on Instagram “It’s more down to game awareness and being more brave in putting bowlers under pressure and not allowing them to bowl in similar areas for longer periods of time unless it is absolutely overcast and ball swinging all over the place like it happened on day 1,” he added.

  18. If you’ve recently gotten into fitness as a lifestyle, then chances are that one of the goals you might be aiming for would be to successfully do a pullup. While it may look easy for onlookers, a pullup requires a lot more than brute strength. Relying purely on strength can cause different muscles to overcompensate for the under developed muscles. So, it is important to gradually, but surely build your way up to doing a pullup the proper way. Increase Your Hang Time © iStock For the first week your priority should be to hang from the pull up bar for as long as possible. You can use a chair to get to the height of the bar for the initial days. Being able to handle one's own body weight is vital for a pullup. Your wrists and your grip will take some time to get used to your weight, but within a week to ten days you’ll find yourself being able to extend your hang time. 10 reps of 10 seconds each. Patience and incremental progress should be your focus. Pull Up Hold © iStock Now that you’re comfortable hanging on to the bar, your next aim should be to get used to positioning yourself above the bar. Using a chair to step on, you can jump on top of the bar and hold yourself in the top position of the pull-up. You may use a pull-up band for assistance in case you’re unable to raise yourself to that position. The band will take some weight off your body and help you maintain balance and stability. You’ll have to hold this position for as long as you can. Ideally you should be able to do 4 sets of 3-5 seconds hold in a go. Do this for 2 weeks at least. Negative Pull Ups © iStock If by this point you are comfortable holding your bodyweight above the bar, then you can gradually introduce negative pull ups. From the top of the pull up position, gradually bring your body down till you’re hanging comfortably. Be careful not to drop the entire weight suddenly as it may cause injuries. The focus should be doing the movement as slowly as possible. Do 5-10 reps of these for 3 sets daily for 2 weeks. Strict Pull Up © iStock Once you’ve performed negative pull ups for a couple of weeks, your body should be ready to squeeze out your initial few strict pull ups. From the starting position, slowly bring yourself up above the bar, and then back to the starting position. This will be harder than the entire regimen till now. But you should give yourself a pat on the back even if you’re only able to do 2-5 strict ones. From here on, you should look at increasing the stability and fluidity of your motion, without using any momentum for assistance. Hurray! Now that you’ve successfully completed your first few pullups, you should give yourself credit for accomplishing something that was seemingly impossible for you. Patience and persistence will take you a long way. View the full article
  19. Our body is a wonderful machine, capable of great things if we dedicate the time, effort and discipline into it. When it comes to exercise routines, it’s essential to have an end goal clearly in mind, otherwise you run the risk of running around like headless chickens without much progress to show. You may have seen Cristiano Ronaldo leap higher than his rivals to score a header, or even Tiger Shroff performing stunts that seem superhuman. If that’s a skill you’d want to master through your workout regimen, then developing explosive strength is one such goal that you can look at. But what is explosive strength? It refers to body movements that demand your body to use strength and speed in tandem. While going to the gym and working on individual body parts is always helpful, explosive strength enables you to concentrate on delivering high energy outputs in short bursts. Extremely useful for football, martial arts and several other sports. Vertical JumpsObviously, the first movement you’d want to be working on is your ability to jump vertically. At the beginning, your aim shouldn’t be to jump as high as possible, but rather increasing the number of jumps you’re comfortably executing in a single session. By doing this you’re getting your body used to the motion. Then once you’re comfortable with it, up the ante by progressively increasing the height of your jumps. © iStock Uphill RunsMost athletes and runners often ignore the immense benefits of running uphill. Find a spot that offers you slight elevation to run on, and run in short bursts of speed. Not more than 15-20 seconds each sprint. Rest for a couple of minutes and repeat it for a circuit of 5 rounds. This attunes your glutes, hips, quads and hamstrings to fire in unison which in turn, results in better explosive strength over time. © iStock Lateral HopThis movement allows your body to develop stability while also honing that explosive strength. The trick is to start off with a strong focus on stability over frequency. Stand on a single leg. Maintain your balance and jump to the side, then return to the starting position. Repeat it with the other leg. Once you’re comfortable balancing the movement, then you may increase the frequency. After sometime you’ll find yourself easily hopping left to right on a single leg. That’s when you want to consider amping up the intensity of each jump. Pistol SquatsA step above the regular squat, pistol squats are crucial for developing balanced strength in individual legs. This exercise can help build a stronger neuromuscular connection, especially if you do it slowly. The reason why it’s great for explosive strength is because it forces you to train your ankle and foot mobility. Take it easy in the beginning, use support while you teach your body to handle your weight on a single leg. Within a few weeks to a month of consistent practice you’ll find yourself doing pistol squats with minimal effort. © iStock Explosive strength in an individual is the sign of a well tuned body. However, do keep in mind that if you’re a beginner, you might want to take things slowly in order to avoid risk of injuries. Start with slower and focused movements and then slowly build up from there. View the full article

  21. What comes to your mind when I refer to a best dressed man? A gentleman in tuxedo. That’s a common picture but dressing well doesn’t mean you wear a suit all the time like Christian Grey or Jay Gatsby. I’m not going to lie, girls like it but it’s not practical. Being the best dressed man in the room—it’s an aura. It’s not your suit, it’s an intangible vibe that declares confidence, class, respect, strength and sometimes power the moment you enter a room. It’s the strongest when you’re comfortable with what you wear. Some men are natural at turning heads into their direction and others have to work on it. A lot of us have started going out (TBH, it isn’t encouraged) but if you’re going places, you might as well dress for the occasion. The rules are simple. __ECOMLOOKS__3047__ __ECOMLOOKS__3048__ __ECOMLOOKS__3049__ The BottomlineAt times, dressing well is less about what you wear and more about what you don’t. So, try to borrow only the essentials from your wardrobe and leave the rest for later. Explore More View the full article

Nutella sandwich © iStock It is as simple as it sounds and makes for a great breakfast or even a hassle-free dessert recipe (with ice cream on top). Spread a generous amount of nutella on bread. Grease the pan and cook it from both sides. Have it with coffee or a milkshake. Butter garlic rice © iStock If you have some cooked rice, you make an excellent and quick recipe out of it. Heat some butter in a pan and add chopped garlic. Stir for a minute and toss the rice in it. Add salt, oregano and chilli that you’ve saved from the pizza delivery and you’re done!
